In reference to the images, comments from Director Oshii is:

I want to do Girl Meets Girl seriously. The story of the connection between people. That’s why it’s “blood”. There are also words such as “blood ties” and “friends connected by blood”, but I wanted to talk about “blood” seriously. So “vampire”. “Sucking blood” may be a symbolic act, but in many ways, I thought about symbolically talking about “blood.”

And dealing with vampires is also a story of a different culture. It is a different culture, so-called non-human (jingai). I’m human but not human. Someone’s fate is someone’s sacrifice (nail), and he can only live at someone’s sacrifice. The story of encountering such foreign things and connecting them. When it comes to blood, it tends to be dark and gruesome, but instead, I wanted to do it lightly.

These are the visuals from the first episode:
